Hotel stay leads to drug possession charges for Georgia couple

Georgia couples may book rooms in hotels for any number of reasons. Sometimes, hotel stays provide convenience to travelers who are either taking a break amid a longer journey or are visiting family in the area and do not wish to impose on their relatives for a place to stay. Not every hotel stay is innocent, however -- at least, according to police who claim one couple was arrested for drug possession and child endangerment due to their illicit hotel activities.

What's involved in a plea bargain?

Most Georgia criminal defendants want to get their charges dropped or dismissed; or, they want to achieve a verdict of "not guilty." But sometimes, these results are either not possible or extremely unlikely.

You don't have to leave the store to be accused of shoplifting

Georgia shoppers may be among the millions of Americans who regularly visit a local mall. A day at a shopping mall can be a nice way to spend an afternoon, and people enjoy hunting a bargain, seeing the latest trends, and maybe grabbing lunch at the food court. For shoppers who make purchases at multiple stores, keeping all the bags organized can be tricky, but shoppers beware, a slip-up can lead to accusations of shoplifting

Are penalties for marijuana possession unfair?

Georgia residents may be frustrated when they look at neighboring states' relaxing marijuana laws. For Georgia residents who use marijuana, the fear of being caught and charged with marijuana possession can cause serious stress. In the state of Georgia, being convicted of marijuana possession can result in penalties like fines, probation or even jail time. 

Drug possession, other charges leveled against Georgia man

When faced with a troubling situation, some people may choose to simply bury their heads in hopes that it will blow over. However, if a person faces criminal charges for drug possession or other similar crimes, this approach is likely not the best. Criminal allegations typically do not just go away, and knowing what to expect when they are addressed is important.

Frequently asked questions about domestic violence

No one ever said that having a family would be easy, but if you've been falsely accused of committing domestic violence against a relative, you probably feel like family life is one of the most difficult experiences anyone can endure. Regardless of how your domestic violence accusations came about, it's important to try and set your emotions aside and educate yourself on the issue at hand.

Shoplifting case remains shrouded in uncertainty

Georgia residents are taught from a young age that removing merchandise from a store without paying for it is against the law and can lead to serious legal trouble. Shoplifting is one of the most common crimes in the United States. Unfortunately, sometimes, police make accusations before enough evidence has been gathered to prove a crime has occurred, and innocent people can wind up facing serious allegations. 

Just because it's prescription medication doesn't mean it's legal

There are many confusing nuances to criminal law regarding drug possession and use both in Georgia and across the country. Many people rightfully find the laws that currently exist to be confusing and hard to understand. This can lead to people making mistakes that have legal and criminal consequences.
